HOW TO MAKE
This simple tutorial is for cupcakes toppers. Cupcake toppers are an easy way to add fun to your party, and continue your party theme. This is a fun & quick DIY project...
Here's what you'll need...
2″ Craft Punch (this is a Fiskars Punch)
Glue stick, permanent tape runners or double sided tape
Lollipop Sticks, Toothpicks or Popsicle Sticks
Scissors or Paper Trimmer
Printable Cupcake Topper Design
STEP ONE: Cut your printables into strips.
With a 2 inch Circle Punch, slide the strip into the punch until your design is centered... then punch it out.
NOTE: If you don't have a 2 inch Circle Punch, you can cut them into squares, use a Scallop Circle Punch, or cut them out with a die cutting machine... I like using my silhouette.
This step is optional... To finish off the back of your cupcake topper, punch out plain white circles. These will be used for the back your cupcake toppers to them a finished look.
NOTE: If I'm using white lollipop sticks (like shown), I don't usually do this step... BUT when I'm using something that will 'show up', (ie: toothpicks, popsicle sticks, straws... etc.) on the back side... I make sure to do this step.
Place your punched out circles face down, with the white side facing you. Place a little adhesive on the punched out circle, with the cupcake topper design bottom at the bottom.
NOTE: I always recommend using tools you are comfortable with... so use the adhesive you like best... BUT it needs to be a permanent adhesive.
STEP FIVE : Place the lollipop stick on the adhesive.
Place adhesive on one side of the (optional) plain circle, then adhere it to the back of the cupcake topper... & your cupcake toppers are complete... adding more fun to your party.
NOTE: By doing these same steps you can give your cupcake toppers a different look... use a scallop punch... or use cutouts from your printable party kit as cupcake toppers. Make them your own... and have fun!
Well that's it... have fun making these for your next party!
